Academic Conduct Policy Details

An academic community requires the highest stan­dards of honor and integrity in all of its participants if it is to fulfill its mission. In such a community, faculty, students and staff are expected to maintain high standards of aca­demic conduct. The purpose of this policy is to make all aware of these expectations. Additionally, the policy out­lines some, but not all, of the situations that can arise that violate these standards. Further, the policy sets forth a set of procedures, characterized by a “sense of fair play,” which is used when these standards are violated. In this spirit, some definitions of academic misconduct are listed here. These are by no means exhaustive.
